Diesel generator does not working - Taylor Skid Mount Diesel Generator Set 30 kW

    I might be able to help you, but I need to ask you a few questions first.

    1/ Does the engine run? (silly I know but you don't clarify wether it runs or is not producing power).

    2./ If running do you get any readings on the guages and what guages do you have.

    3/ Is there a main breaker on the generator housing or control box?

    As an electrician I fix generators all the time, and the above are the usual first steps in troubleshooting a genset.

    Look forward to hearing back from you.

After using a diesel generator for a long time, some malfunctions may occur that will cause the generator fail to start.
If diesel generators fail to start, you can analyze the causes from fuel system failure, electric starting system failure, insufficient compression pressure in the cylinder and the low ambient temperature and other factors.
1. Air in the fuel system
2. Fuel line obstruction
3. Fuel filter clogging
4. The handle position of fuel injection pump is not correct
5. Battery power shortage
6. Run out of fuel

Please give more info, Diesel generators are pretty reliable but because of the safeties it can make it a little harder to diagnose. Check the oil level, see if the fuel filter is full, the radiator and reservoir are full, and that the air filter is clean. If you still have a no start then it could be due to air in a fuel line or inside the injection pump, or one of your safety sensors are malfunctioning. Depending on which model you own you may have an electric or mechanical fuel pump. You may want to see if its working.Well good luck, please let me know if I can help.

Troubleshooting generators

If this unit dies under load conditions, decrease your load and try it again.
If this happens under no-load conditions, check your fuel supply. Start with the filters, then check pressure and flow.
